Marvel Snap’s Nian Challenge community-wide web event kicks off the Lunar New Year celebrations! All players contribute to deal damage to the Nian Beast with firecrackers over the next 2 weeks. Rewards are handed out according to the number of event participation to earn Gold, Credits, and a Lunar New Year Sword Master Avatar. This time, there is even a leaderboard for each of the four regions for the top 10 players to show off an exclusive Title Not a Puny Mortal!
You can access the event by pressing the News icon on the top right hand corner and selecting the News tab (mobile only). Here is our complete guide to the event!

A fierce beast has descended upon the village, devouring anything in its path…
It is said that this is the Ancient Legend known as “Nian Beast,” a ferocious creature which is afraid of loud noises and the color red.
- Finish missions to win firecrackers. Firecrackers can be used to deal damage to Nian Beast.
- Players can earn a maximum of 300 firecrackers each day.
- Rewards will be unlocked when the combined damage from all players reduces Nian’s health to the following breakpoints:
80% Health: 200 Credits
40% Health: 100 Gold
0% Health: Sword Master Lunar New Year Avatar
- The leaderboard rank will be determined by total damage dealt. In the case of a tie, the player with higher in-game rank wins. Top 10 of each regional leaderboard will obtain:
A title: “Not a Puny Mortal!”
- This event will end 1/30 6:59:59 (UTC 0) or 1/29 22:59:59 PT.

Lunar New Year Bundle
More things could be lined up for the Lunar New Year in 2023, including the upcoming Festival Fireworks Bundle that should go on sale starting from January 22.
Similar to the preceding Hype the Hero! event, this is another low-commitment event that players can expect to earn all the rewards, though this time the top 10 players from each region can also earn an exclusive Title that they can show off. Players are expected to just play games, win or lose, and encourages you to play with one of the four cards. All of them are accessible and are good cards in their respective decks!
